Ask God to Make Something Beautiful out of Your Life

Updated on July 3, 2013
Source

If you have had negative attitudes about yourself-resentment because of your appearance, your lack of talent, your singleness, or anything else, ask God to forgive you. Ask God to forgive any bitterness you have had toward His creation- you.

Then thank God for creating you just the way you are. This will not be an easy step. You may feel you cannot thank God for creating you the way you are when you hate the way you are. You may think this makes you a hypocrite, that you can’t thank God when you don’t feel thankful. But you can do it even if you don’t feel like it. Giving thanks is an act of the will. Feeling thankful is an emotion. Do not let your emotions control you. You can give thanks even though you don’t feel like it. Set your will in the right direction, and your emotions will follow.

When you know that God accepts and loves you just the way you are, you don’t have to feel as though you must change yourself. Your self-worth should not be programmed by others but rooted and grounded in the value God places on you. He is interested only in helping you leave destructive attitudes and behaviors behind.

You are complete in Christ. You are accepted by Him, the King of the Universe! When you know this, it frees you to be the you you’ve always wanted to be! God provides you with a fresh beginning if you are willing to obey His Word.

If you take God at His Word, believing that you are loved and worthy while, then you have a solid base from which to operate. You will have a firm center to your life. You will be free to put the same kind of love and respect you have for yourself to work in your love relationships. Remember, you can never experience a true love relationship unless you first take care of any self-acceptance problems within you. Not only does God count you as acceptable, but He stands ready to work miracles in you, to change your worst failures and memories into success.

      Amen! God's love conquers all, if we can just keep this thought in mind. The world works hard to beat it out of our consciousness, so thank you, for putting it back in there!

      This is beautiful and a wonderful reminder of what an awesome God we serve. We must always remember to always bow down, repent, praise and worship God, and live in obedience to Him. In the hustle and bustle of every day life sometimes we don't do these things every day. When our focus is on God and not ourselves, well, I feel better about everything when I focus on God's mightyness and forget about me.
